In an exclusive chat with omg! Lauren told us that she thinks Amy left the show too soon and could have stayed a lot longer.
Lauren told us: "I think Amy should have stayed longer, she left too early but she had an amazing offer, she had to take but I know she had so much more to give."
Amy famously left the show after the first series to concentrate on her own projects, a decision which split Essex and caused some people to make some not very nice comments about Amy.
Lauren says: "I don't think they were bitching, they were retaliating. Amy can give a lot of opinions on the show even though she isn't on it anymore."
"And if someone says something unkind, they are going to retaliate."
However, we're not sure how much to trust Ms Pope, after she also told us in the same interview that she would 'never' get back with Kirk.
We chatted to Lauren just a few days before she did, in fact, do just that on this week's TOWIE!
Lauren told us: "No, I would never get back with Kirk, no! Mick is better than Kirk!"
Lauren is currently working with Motorola to coincide with the launch of its new smartphone RAZR. Read more info on Motorola RAZR i here.
